A very interesting tour for first time visitors in Rio. Many places and atractions we saw that we do not know before. Leonardo was a very good and patient guide for the three of us. We are very satisfied with this tour

Because it was afternoon and 102 degrees no one else was interested in a walking tour, so we had a private tour. Our guide Tauan was the best.....very knowledgeable, considerate, good sense of humor. We walked for 4 hours, rode the subway, and saw things we never would have found on our own, like the money exhibit in the museum in the bank building. A wonderful experience all around!

This was a fantastic walking tour and I emphasize walking. Be prepared for 3 to 4 hours on your feet. The pace was casual so we didn't feel over exerted, but we still got to see so much. Our guide Heraclito aka Kiko was terrific. We had a mixup on our location at the beginning of the tour, called the company and Kiko came to our Metro Station to meet us. We started in Cinelandia and finished at the Olympic torch. Didn't count all the sites we saw, but I'm sure 15 is a fair number. We never felt rushed and saw sites like the Catedral de Sao Sebastiao that we may never had ventured to on our own. It was a very good introduction to Centro Rio and I would recommend at the beginning of a trip to Rio.

Jewish Tour in Rio de Janeiro | Feb 2020
We did a shore excursion and were told to be on the dock at 8:30. The other couple from the ship on our tour was told 9:00. After beginning the tour with a half hour wait, we drove to a hotel to pick up a third couple and waited about another half hour with the tour starting a full hour late. Not a good start! Also a tour booked as “shore excursion” should never make hotel pickups! Ephraim, our leader, said he was a tour guide teacher at one point. I don’t know what kind of teacher he was, but as a guide, he was extremely a poor. He had a hard time understanding us. He told us next to nothing while driving around the city. In one temple he simply handed us a sheet of information and sat down to wait for us to look around. The same happened at the Jewish museum where he handed us a pamphlet and waited for us to look around. The worst part in my opinion was when he pointed out a bathroom we could use. I went in and when I came out, he was gone with the group, having left no instructions as to where I could meet them. After looking all over two floors of the building without finding them, I spent the balance of that stop waiting in the van. After I had spent one hour waiting for the tour to start, I was outraged that he could not wait a few minutes for me or at least let me know where to find him when I was finished. The sights were worth seeing but the aggravation with Ephraim’s lack of leadership made this a very frustrating experience.

Jewish Tour in Rio de Janeiro | Feb 2020
Katya (Kathie) was great. It was good to visit the various synagogues which were all different. The Jewish Museum is rather sad for a Jewish community as large as it is in Rio - just one room in an office block. Yitzchak Rabin park is not accessible at the moment. Enjoyed it but overall not masses to see.

Whenever I travel outside the United Staes I also try to include a Jewish content to my visit. This was a great morning full of Jewish heritage and history. Leonardo was so personable. The tour was personalize to our interests. It also served as a wonderful introduction to the whole city of Rio De Janeiro.

City Tour-Christ Redeemer, Sugarloaf, Selaron Staircase, Maracanã - Full Day | Mar 2019
The tour was awesome. The problem was that the cathedral, which was part of the tour, was closed. I have to mention that we were the only participants who had to personally get tickets for the Christ Redeemer entrance while the rest of the group were purchased by the tour guide which made us feel out of place.

Corcovado with Christ Statue - Be One of the First to Get There | Oct 2018
Great pre tour information re our hotel pick up time. Good driver. Gisele was an efficient and helpful tour guide. It was easy for us to buy the entrance ticket with the credit card. We were one of the first to reach the Christ the Redeemer statue on a day with clear blue skies. This gave us stunning views of the surrounding area. The statue itself is very impressive and well worth a photo. The road trip up and down was also interesting. We were delivered back to our hotel in good time via a comfortable van.

We spent a beautiful day with Gisela and her driver. Gisela was very informative and took us to most of the beautiful sites of Rio. Our visits to the Christ and the Sugar Loaf were scheduled very early in the morning; therefore, we were able to avoid the long lines and big crowds. Highly recommended!

City Tour-Christ Redeemer, Sugarloaf, Selaron Staircase, Maracanã - Full Day | Aug 2018

Kiko the guide was amazing. We happen to be on this tour on a very rainy day so the visibility from both Sugar Loaf and The Redeemer was almost ZERO. He took us to see the view from Yizhak Rabin Square which is not as high so we took some amazing photos. Aside from the fact that we got the full history of the city and great insight.
Thanks Efraim for having Kiko as your tour guide. I would highly recommend this trip.

Corcovado with Christ Statue - Be One of the First to Get There | Jun 2018
We went on the early morning half day tour which promises to get you to Christ the Redeemer statue before the crowds. Well I thought it was too good to be true but we were actually the first group at the entrance to the park and therefore the first ones to get to the top. And it was well worth it to get those amazing views and pictures without hords of others blocking your shot. Our guide and fellow travelers were great too. The small group mixed well, would highly recommend to others.

This tour was great! I saw everything I wanted to see in Rio in one day. My tour guide was informative and tried his best to keep the larger group on a schedule so that we could still get everything in. I would recommend this tour if you want to see all the famous landmarks all in one day.
